John 6:66-69 The Words of Eternal Life

Brother Emmanuel has written this to me and I am posting once again.  As you begin reading, I must first say that this is not easy to follow and I first found it very strict but I believe in it.  However, my readers may not understand. . .

As a result of this, many of his disciples returned to their former way of life and no longer accompanied him.  Jesus then said to the Twelve, “Do you also want to leave?”  Simon Peter answered him, “Master, to whom shall we go?  You have the words of eternal life.  We have come to believe and are convinced that you are the Holy One of God. ”  John 6: 66–69.

   Peter gives us the witness of one who has come to believe that there is only one good option in life.  That option is the choice to follow Jesus no matter what.  Nothing in life is worth choosing over Christ.  We should strive to discover this truth that He is the only one worth choosing.

   Reflect, today, upon these words of Peter.  “Lord, to whom shall we go?”  Jesus is God, the Messiah and Savior.  He has the words of everlasting life.  He is the best “option” to choose.  Say those words of Peter and, in saying them, make the choice to choose Him no matter how popular or unpopular that choice is and no matter if others are making it.  Going with the flow leads us down the wrong river.  Making the right choice sets us on solid ground.  Morning and have a blessed Sunday.

Reader, if you made it up to here, I suggest you ponder now.  I did not believe this until Brother Emmanuel brought this to my attention to ponder upon.  What does it really mean to go with the flow?  When I went with the flow in bad company, I made a lot of misery for myself and others.  How about you?

    This is one of the most powerful verses in Scripture for me. It really puts everything in perspective.
    It is helpful to remember that this occurs right after Jesus talks about eating His body and drinking His blood. Most of His followers stop following Him at this point. Jesus does not try to stop them. He does not say “wait, I didn’t mean it” like He had done other times He spoke.
    What He does is let everyone choose for themselves and we must choose for ourself. After all love is a choice. It has to be a choice to be love. You can’t be forced to love someone. God wants us to love Him as He loves each and every one of us. And It must be a choice. St. Peter made the wise choice.
